That’s Awfully old to be a Heisman Trophy winner.
He must have flunked senior year a BUNCH of times.
Hmm... born in 1934... would have been 21 in 1955.
I think someone else might have flunked math... but not Hoppy.
It was a BAD JOKE!! :)
Condolences to family and friends of Hopalong Cassidy. R.I.P., sir. Thanks.
I had watched Mr. Cassidy play football a bunch of times when I was a boy, but I had forgotten he played for Ohio State. RIP, Mr. Cassidy. You did good, Sir.
